Airports aren’t really the definition of fun… but an airport with a pool is a different story. 

There are few things worse than having to pack up your bikini  and head to the airport after a beach vacation. Well, one Caribbean destination has come up with a way to extend that vacation just a bit longer.

Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana airport is currently building a pool at the airport. That’s right, local architect Antonio Segundo Imbert has designed the swimming hole, due to open in December, which will overlook an area with parked planes.

Of course not everyone will be able to enjoy a dip before heading on to their flight or it would be total chaos. Instead, it will be part of a VIP lounge open to first and business class passengers, as well as club members and elite traveler pass holders. But the public can get a taste of the pool if they are willing to shell out some dough. The airport plans to charge regular passengers $125 per person for the day, with discounts for larger parties.

We are all for this new idea! Tell us your thoughts @theMRLshow!
